Keith Heyer Meldahl is Professor of Geology and Oceanography at Mira Costa College and the author of two popular books, Hard Road West and Rough-Hewn Land (UC Press, 2011).
"With a compelling narrative and clear illustrations, Surf, Sand, and Stone outlines how the coast will be altered in the future and how we can best prepare for it." - Ian Paulsen,, Birdbooker Report
"Reading Meldahl’s Surf, Sand, and Stone brought back to me the thrill I felt when discovering geography... [Meldahl] describes often-complex processes in a dazzlingly clear, unpretentious, and entertaining style." - Yearbook of the Association of Pacific Coast Geographers
"Meldahl is a fine writer, easing his readers into difficult concepts gently, explaining them fully, providing excellent illustrations with fully explanatory captions and using the imagery of the everyday to make difficult concepts seem less so." - Geological Journal
